Growth and strong financial position

Net sales in the first half of the year total SEK 694.8 (684.4) million. Operating profit (EBIT) is SEK 66.3 (71.1) million, which is equivalent to a margin of 9.5 per cent. Liquid assets total SEK 119.8 million.

“HiQ continues to grow and we are now more employees than ever before. We perform a solid result in a seasonally challenging quarter and we keep on winning new assignments and framework agreements. It’s gratifying to note that we have a strong financial position and that we distributed a dividend of SEK 2.60 per share, approximately SEK 137 million, to our shareholders during the second quarter,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

The digital and mobile development is creating endless possibilities and the demand for functioning IT solutions has never been stronger. Vast experience and profound know-how makes HiQ a given partner to companies and organisations for whom IT has become a critical factor. During the second quarter, HiQ for example wins a business critical assignment with Finnair, with the task to help the airline company with development, support and operation of critical systems.

“IT will continue evolving into an even bigger and more natural part of our lives, around the clock and whether you are 3 or 103 years old. With strong finances, creative clients, and skilled employees we look forward to continue being a leading player in the development that is simplifying people’s everyday lives,” Lars Stugemo concludes.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
